♦ Category: Energy

IPCC: 1A1ai - Fuel Combustion Activities - Energy Industries - Main Activity Electricity and Heat Production - Electricity Generation
Sector: Electricity Generation (In State) : Merchant Owned

♦ Activity: Fuel combustion - Tires

♦ Greenhouse gas: Carbon dioxide from biogenic sources ( CO2 )

► Year 2014 —

● Greenhouse gas emission estimate —

Amount: 0 tonne of CO2 From biogenic materials (0 tonne CO2 Eq.)
Basis: Calculation
Calculation: [Fuel combustion] * [Proportion of renewables] * [Heat content] * [Fuel CO2 emission]
Reference: ARB (2016). Technical support document on GHG inventory methodologies for the 2000-2014 inventory.

● Activity level used in calculations —

Activity: Fuel combustion = 0 ton of Tires
Basis: Data
